Israel's Eternal Capital
Yom Yerushalayim "יום
Day) is the
most recent addition to the Hebrew calendar as an Israeli and Jewish
national holiday, celebrating the reunification of Jerusalem, every year
on the 28th day of Iyar. The Chief Rabbinate of Israel declared
Jerusalem Day a minor religious holiday to thank God for the victory of
the six-day-war, and for answering the 2,000-year-old prayer of "Next
Year in Jerusalem".
Yom Yerushalayim is marked by state
ceremonies, memorial services for soldiers who died in the battle for
Jerusalem, parades through downtown Jerusalem, reciting the Hallel
prayer in synagogues, lectures on Jerusalem-related topics, singing and
dancing, and special television programming.
